Pros

New sales leaders have provided new direction, strategy and energy into the salesforce Products and services and highly respected in the industry Senior leadership seems humble about past mistakes The events have been upgraded both in terms of content and style Dramatic increase in interest from the market in working here

Cons

Some legacy employees still affected by past two years of underperformance

Advice to Management

Keep making changes that are based on input from clients and field personnel versus the boardroom.

    Pros

    Good brand, although deteriorating Some very helpful people who really want to help the customer Lots of products/services to sell if you sell to vendors and vendors actually want to buy form Forrester - much easier to be successful good benefits - especially if you are in Cambridge - but good overall

    Cons

    below average pay in sales for the complexity and skill you need to do the job incomprehensibly complex for no good reason very little courage displayed by management - but plenty of rules a lot of STICK and not much carrot legacy "loyalists" get promoted regardless of leadership traits 800 lb Gorilla of a competitor lots and lots of finger pointing and butt kissing, not a lot of courage

    Pros

    Very smart people that work hard for the client. Sales people are under intense pressure and the company says they look after the clients interests however when quarter end rolls around its all about closing the deal.

    Cons

    Tough business model, senior management is struggling to find right combination of solutions/products, if you are not from Cambridge then you will be a second class citizen. San Francisco employees and other locations are not treated as well. There is a Cambridge centric thought pattern and also very clubby if you are in Cambridge

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees for once
